TRIVIA: After meeting on the set of this film in September 2014, Alicia Vikander and Michael Fassbender announced they were dating in December 2014. 

Michael Fassbender and Alicia Vikander revealed that Derek Cianfrance made them live together on set for six weeks.

Prior to filming in Stanley, the historic wharf was rebuilt with a rustic edge. Locals of Stanley adopted the 1920s look prior to filming and hereby many men grew beards for their roles as extras.

The book The Light Between Oceans, on which this movie is based, contains three coincidental links to previous films of Michael Fassbender. First, his character Tom travels on the ship SS Prometheus: Fassbender starred as android David in Prometheus (2012). Second, Tom's wife, Isabel, is given a gramophone record, Bach's Goldberg Variations, as a gift: this piece of music was the soundtrack to the jogging scene in Fassbender's film Shame (2011). Finally, in Frank (2014), towards the end of the movie, Fassbender's Frank walks into a bar, where Maggie Gyllenhaal is singing the song "I Want to Marry a Lighthouse Keeper". Fassbender's character in The Light Between Oceans, Tom, is a lighthouse keeper.

Both lead actors, Michael Fassbender and Alicia Vikander, previously played artificial-intelligence characters in Prometheus (2012) and Ex Machina (2015), respectively.
